Promoting Positive Development Among Youth
The focus this semester will be a discussion and analysis of national, and in particular, international perspectives on promoting positive development through youth participation in, and leadership of, civil society. The course will present the work of scholars and practitioners who have pursued (a) the building of civil society through the strategy of youth civic engagment and the fostering of healthy individual development; and (b) the promotion of positive development through engaging youth i
Electron Transport Chain
This illustration from Biology by Kenneth R. Miller and Joseph Levine describes the steps of the electron transport chain, the second stage in the process of cellular respiration.
Calculus-Based Physics is an introductory physics textbook designed for use in the two-semester introductory physics course typically taken by science and engineering students.
When I started teaching this subject I found three kinds of texts. There were applications books that avoid proofs and cover the linear algebra only as needed for their applications. There were advanced books that assume that students can understand their elegant proofs and know how to answer the homework questions having seen only one or two examples. And, there were books that spend a good part of the semester multiplying matrices and computing determinants and then suddenly change level to wo
Information Economics, Winter 2007
This course is a half-semester module, Information Economics. In the second half-semester I teach a companion module, Incentive-Centered Design: Contracting and Signaling. My goal is to give you a strong grounding in the economics of information goods and services. We will analyze strategic issues faced by for-profit and not-for-port organizations: pricing, bundling, versioning, network externalities and rights management. My teaching objectives are: To provide you with a framework for understan
AP Physics B II
This course is divided into two semesters and is designed to acquaint you with topics in classical and modern physics. The first semester discusses topics in Newtonian mechanics including: kinematics, laws of motion, work and energy, systems of particles, momentum, circular motion, oscillations, and gravitation. The first semester concludes with topics in fluid mechanics, thermal physics, and kinetic theory. The second semester discusses the topics of electricity and magnetism, waves and optics,

"String Theory, Fall 2008"
" This is a one-semester class about gauge/gravity duality (often called AdS/CFT) and its applications."
"Signals, Systems and Information for Media Technology, Fall 2007"
" This class teaches the fundamentals of signals and information theory with emphasis on modeling audio/visual messages and physiologically derived signals, and the human source or recipient. Topics include linear systems, difference equations, Z-transforms, sampling and sampling rate conversion, convolution, filtering, modulation, Fourier analysis, entropy, noise, and Shannon's fundamental theorems. Additional topics may include data compression, filter design, and feature detection. The underg
Simple Nature: An Introduction to Physics for Engineering and Physical Science Students
Simple Nature is a physics textbook intended for students in a three-semester introductory calculus-based course.
Discover Physics is a conceptual physics textbook intended for students in a nonmathematical one-semester general-education course.
Principles of Macroeconomics
This book is intended for a one-semester course in Macroeconomics taught out the social sciences or business school. The authors take a three-pronged approach to every concept: (1) the concept is covered with a "Heads Up" to ward off confusion, (2) a "You Try It" section makes sure students are staying on top of the concept and (3) a "Case and Point" section that uses a real-world application to harness the concept in reality
Principles of Microeconomics
The authors teach economics as the study of “choice “ by providing students with an accessible, straightforward overview of economics. This text combines the clarity and writing of Tregarthen's seminal periodical "The Margin" with great teaching insights.Rittenberg and Tregarthen help students to understand how real individuals actually work with economics. In this new book, the authors illustrate the practicality and relevance of economics with a variety of new illustrations and insights.Th

Junior Solar Sprint and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Competitions
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory hosts the U.S. Department of Energy's Junior Solar Sprint/Hydrogen Fuel Cell (JSS/HFC) Car Competitions. Middle School teams from all over the Colorado Region participate in this fun, educational and exciting event. Teams work together building solar and/or hydrogen fuel cell cars with guidance from a parent or teacher coach to compete in race and design categories. A "Spirit Award" is also presented to the team recognized for good sportsmanship. Building
Do you hear the people sing? from Les Miserables
This is a live performance of the 10th Anniversary Concert of Les Miserables. While the singers are in costume, this is not a stage production of the musical. The orchestra and singers are both on stage together with the orchestra behind the singers. This is a very interesting live concert production with occasional excerpts of footage from the stage production. The picture quality is good and the sound quality is excellent. The performance is well done.
